Ching-Chou Kuik Digital Stamps Facebook Challenge - April 2016 - The 4 Elements

It is time for another challenge over at the Ching-Chou Kuik's Digital Stamps Facebook Group.

The challenge for April 2016 is "The 4 Elements" ie water, fire, earth and air.

I know I am not on Facebook Design Team but I have made a card for the challenge.
I decided to go with the element theme of water and I have used the Ching-Chou Kuik digital stamp called "Magic Wish".  I have coloured the image in with my Promarkers and fussy cut around the image.  I added my clear Wink of Stella pen over the mermaid tail.

I have used an MDF tag I had which I painted with some new Imagination Crafts Starlight paints.  This are wonderful for coverage ie a small bit goes a long way and the shiny and sparkly on them is fabulous.  After the blue Starlight paint was dry I used a handmade mask along with my Dutch Doobadoo texture paste to make dots for the water.  I used a piece of sticky back paper for the sand area (left over from hubby covering a coffee table).  On top of the water I painted on a Starlight pearl paint to give some more sparkle and shine.

I have finished off the tag with some cheesecloth, lots of ribbons and fibres, charm, wired leaves and some Joy die-cut shells coloured with Pan Pastels.

I am entering this decorated tag into the following challenges:
